“Are you sitting down?” John asked. “I’m about to send you this picture you’re not going to believe.”
“Is it a carousel horse?” I asked. “Is it a celebrity? It it an English Pointer?” It turns out it was him riding a beautiful white horse called Little Joe. Of course I had to paint it during Facebook Live today. A bunch of our mutual friends watched and it was a lot of fun. We are currently considering building a statue on Heights Boulevard.
Also, I published the deleted scene from Storms of Malhado. I think it’s a good teaser or a good supplement for the book, depending on who reads it. I decided to call it Waiting for the Storm, and for the cover image I chose my very first abstract painting. That painting was such a struggle, and thus it’s well suited to illustrate the growing pains of the artist in the book.
